Speed Problems
To determine the speed of an object, you need to know the distance traveled and the time taken to travel thatdistance. However, by rearranging the formula for speed,
v
=
/
, you can also determine the distance traveled or the time it took for the object to travel that distance, if you know the speed. For example,Use the metric system to solve the practice problems unless you are asked to write the answer using the Englishsystem of measurement. As you solve the problems, include all units and cancel appropriately.
Example 1:
What is the speed of a cheetah that travels 112.0meters in 4.0seconds?
Example 2:
There are 1,609 meters in one mile. What is this cheetah’s speed in miles/hour?
